“Anglo- German displacement and diaspora in the early twentieth century; an intergenerational haunting”.
In this chapter I look at a little known episode in the history of migrant communities: the break up and disappearance of the Anglo-German community in Britain as a consequence of the First World War. I draw partly on a “history from below” approach, but one that is further informed by a contemporary growth in the availability of family ancestry records.
